This song makes me happy :)

I found this track while searching for Beck tunes on eMusic. It’s fairly typical of Beck, but there’s more to it than first meets the eye… (or ear…)

It’s from Dimension Mix, a cover album of songs from Dimension 5 Records. The songs were originally written in the 60′s and 70′s by a duo named Bruce Haack and Esther Nelson, electronic music pioneers who primarily wrote for children – hence a lot of the songs are wacky and fun. The album introduced me to another couple of bands I now also like: The Apples In Stereo, and Oranger.

If you’re in the UK you can listen to the whole of Dimension Mix on Spotify.

I also just found a cool animation for Funky Lil’ Song made by Ross Harris and Joel Fox - nice!
